HERS Index

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance.

Infrared Gun

An infrared gun provides visual feedback on the thermal flow of a structure. With it, you can see where winter heat may be escaping to the outdoors, or where summer heat is leaking in from outside — providing an opportunity to achive maximum efficiency.

Trusted Green Products

Green products reduce waste and maximize resource efficiency. Our favorite green products are designed to minimize environmental impacts during its whole life-cycle and even beyond.

Solar Panels

Solar Panels

With low maintenance and zero emissions, solar panels are a great source of energy providing some independence from external providers. The latest solar panels are more efficient than ever, and don't even require direct sunlight to product output.

Electric Car Charger

Electric Car Charger

Our Green Building projects often include top-of-the-line EV charging stations built right in, ensuring efficient charging for your electric vehicles. They can be placed in any convenient garage location, and even powered by the home's solar panels.
